Product Details

La Pavoni, a titan in the world of coffee, is responsible for the world’s first commercial and domestic espresso machines. The Botticelli Specialty is the best semi-professional lever machine in their range, with twin gauges for both measuring and controlling steam and brew pressure, plus its crowning feature: the BPPC system, which lets you control the pressure in the group head in real time. This facilitates espresso that tastes excellent and consistent (based on your beans). A tactile manual lever provides a nice touch to old-school manual machines, and a heat-exchange mechanism lets you brew coffee and foam milk at the same time. The Botticelli Specialty’s energy-saving insulated copper dual-boiler system ensures optimum performance of coffee brewing and milk foaming. The large 3-litre tank and heat control mechanisms allow you to brew back-to-back coffees, with a Solenoid valve that keeps the puck dry after each brew. You can also plumb this machine into a direct water source to integrate it into your kitchen. This machine’s rotary pump is extra-durable and quieter than standard espresso machines. The steam wand and hot water tap, perfect for Americanos or tea, stay cool to the touch. The top of the machine, with a metal edge, is designed to store coffee mugs and cups, as the heat of the machine warms them. The stainless steel body is electropolished, which results in stronger shine and quality, and is easy to keep clean with a damp cloth. Every part has been made in Milan, and the machine is built to last for decades. Fitted with a UK plug (220-240V) and includes:

  • Two portafilters, one with dual spouts and the other bottomless, which lets you diagnose your tamping
  • Filter baskets for double (16g) and triple (20g) doses; for single shots, use the dual spout portafilter
  • Stainless steel tamper
  • Blind filter basket and cleaning brush
  • Coffee scoop
  • Silicon Drain Hose for drip tray

About The Brand

La Pavoni

La Pavoni, a titan in the coffee world, manufactured the first espresso machine in 1905, and went on to create the first espresso machine for home use in 1961. Since the very beginning, they have operated out of the same factory in Milan, which survived both World Wars. Every machine is hand-assembled with generational knowledge and scientific precision, and the mechanisms have remained virtually unchanged for over 50 years. Every part is easily replaceable, making their extremely durable machines able to last forever.
